The Mail claim Newcastle United are considering Stuttgart target man Sasa Kalajdzic this summer, a player that has also been linked with the likes of Chelsea, Everton and Manchester United throughout the current transfer window.

Kalajdzic, 25, has rid himself of recent injuries to shine for Stuttgart. Joining the club three years ago, he has endured an anterior cruciate ligament injury, and a shoulder problem that limited him to just 15 league games last season.

He still managed to score six goals in the Bundesliga, after scoring 16 and creating six during the 2020-21 season. The 6ft 6in striker is fit again this season, failing to score in his two opening games – but he has laid on three assists.

Reports earlier this summer state that Chelsea, Everton and Manchester United want the £15million-rated Stuttgart talisman. His preference of those clubs is said to be a move to Old Trafford. He is in the final 12 months of his deal.

Now, The Mail claim Newcastle are also looking at the 15-time Austria international. The Toon have been keen to add another striker to Chris Wood and Callum Wilson. TransferMarkt say he shares the same agent with Martin Dubravka.

Newcastle considering Kalajdzic: Chelsea and Everton also linked

Manchester United is his preference and it is easy to see why. United desperately need a no.9 and he fits the bill. Chelsea might also want a striker after allowing Romelu Lukaku to go, but he will hardly start above Kai Havertz.

Everton could do with a striker but when Dom Calvert-Lewin is fit, it would be interesting to see who starts. Newcastle have Wilson, a fan favourite, but Kalajdzic offers a different option. But in terms of competition, United is his best bet.

That is, especially if Cristiano Ronaldo does leave the club before the end of the transfer window. Erik ten Hag also has Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial as options, but they are largely considered to be better off the flanks.
